of merrill lynch, john bain was not about how the system could be saved the economy preserved the integrity of the banks upheld. no he asked if his compensation was going to be cut. this is the guy who spent over a million dollars putting new carpets in his office paid for by shareholders and then taxpayers. today, i participated in a radio broadcast for bbc and npr again on the topic of the financial crisis. on the panel was bethany mclean, a great author and one of our favorite guests. she made a really important point. that flawed compensation structures that gave bankers proverse incentives to take great risk at the expense of others was at the root of the crisis but she pointed out we, as a society, did not and do not object to high pay when people perform. it's when they're compensated with huge paychecks and bonuses even when they fail and then are compensated again and again that we are troubled. she's exactly right. we do not object to derek jeter's big paycheck or warren buffett's. they earned them.
